If you like change, want to be challenged, have lots of job opportunities, have flexible work arrangements, then work for Alstom. Jobs have always been vast but with power and oil & gas industry, it has declined.
Building rotors and casings for nuclear and steam reactors...enormous parts, turned and milled on enormous machines, and toted around with enormous cranes. close tolerance, high precision work with an enormous emphasis on quality. Teamwork was essential, and problems and difficulties were met wit discussion and revised plans. Very much multi cultural, since there was a constant " transfer of technology: supported by a strong European presence. Some of the prints were in German.
good work environment; callenging tasks
They closed us down!

This company has been a good place to work. However, due to the errors made by past leaders in upper management over time, the company is in financial difficulties. The current leadership has decided to focus on the bottom line rather than on customer service and consequently has had to lay-off 12,000 people worldwide. The remaining management is overworked and under experienced. The remaining employees are attempting to adapt to a new culture as well as handle more work than they are capable of finishing.
Working under the Alstom sign was great but after GE took over it spiraled out of control. There were so many changes in both software and manpower that it made doing your job effectively next to impossible. You don't have to look very far to find out about the woes of GE.
Always treated fairly. Great happy but challenging environment. Was a very stressful job at times but the stress was always meant with reward at the end. Team oriented and goal driven environment.
Challenging but great environment. Was a very fair place to work especially under Alstom management. Always treated fairly and was always given a chance at improving myself.
Good pay, happy environment.
Management was not involved when GE took over. Decisions made without input from lower management.
If your willing to apply yourself.They sent me to train in Switzerland,I was impressed b y the speed at which they worked and the tools needed were at hand and in place,Excellent test plans, adaptable and customer oriented. Witnessed it first hand when customer arrived with technical engineer for witness test.The saying of Swiss watch quality extends to the Turbine industry.
First 5 years, one of the best jobs I have had. Was allowed to perform my functions as I saw fit. Put in place many activities that were productive and proactive. Achieved many goals and objectives.When financial problems began and we were bought out, layoffs and shut down began .
good even balance of work
financial problems closing of facilities and layoffs
I learned a vast amount of knowledge working in the power industry, customer service, time management, project planning, and knowledge of gas and steam turbines. Exciting, energetic, and dynamic place to work. Everyday at work brought new challenges and learning experiences. The management team allows individuals to contribute new ideas and encouraged collaboration. I considered coworkers members of my family. We spent so much time together how could we not be a family!
Environment, Multi Job Cross Training
The hardest part of the job is they would often make us work 12+ hours a day, seven days a week. They would freeze all vacations and write you up for calling in sick.
Travel and good pay
long hours and no defined leadership
Same problem no change,management was so lost.Could not tell them anything they were to smart for the people who actually did the work.they would ask for our input only to do it wrong just like they did the last time.
Worked with some of the best people. learned a lot about different cultures, technologies and machining methods. The hardest part of this job is being shut down and all of my coworkers going different directions.
GE closing the facility
